I am very much new to orchard and successfully created a module and a custom theme. The documentation really helped me.

Right Now I have a Page (SingIn.cshtml) in my module. This page includes Registration and Login

My Question are.

1- How I will be able to redirect the user to SingIn.cshtml page for Login Purpose, Which Web.Config I should change so that the controller Action with [Authorize] Tag Redirect to SingIn.cshtml

2- How to add Login and Registration Feature in my SingIn.cshtml. I know that there is a module with the name of ORCHARD.USERS but I cannot use that for Registration Purpose. I want the registration and login to be done from SingIn.cshtml

3- If there is a better way to handle this then please suggest me.

Your suggestions/help will be highly appreciated.

Can some one say something about this issue?

The question is, why can't you use Orchard.Users? You should probably be looking at how to extend that rather than completely reinventing the wheel.

Thanks for your response.

I agree with you, I also prefer the build in Orchard.Users


Its the requirements from Client End to Use a specific page for Sign In and Sign Up, The client do not want the application to redirect to Orchard.Users Login Page, He want to have a custom login page.

Please share the link/article for extending the Orchard.Users Module.

If all you want to do is change the .cshtml of those pages, you can simply override them. To do this, copy the templates as follows:

- LogOn.cshtml and Register.cshtml from Orchard.Users/Views to [YourTheme]/Views

- Everything from Orchard.Users/Views/Account to [YourTheme]/Views/Orchard.Users/Account

(LogOn.cshtml and Register.cshtml are shapes, but all the other files are normal MVC views, which is why the override locations are different)

Now you have a copy of all the relevant files so you can make any changes directly in your theme.

If you want to override the actual behaviour of a specific page it gets more tricky, but again tell us exactly what you want to do, there's already a module available for registration customisation which might help you.

In My Registration Page, I need Following Fields
--Full Name:
--Confirm Password:
--Check Box For I agree to the Terms Of Use/Privacy Statement
--Already a Member Link (that will redirect to My Login Page)

In Orchard.Users Registration following fields are available
-Confirm password:

So In this case I want to
-Remove Username
-Add FullName
-Add Check Box For I agree to the Terms Of Use/Privacy Statement
-Add Already a Member Link

Using Orchard.Users How I will be able to do this?

There's an ExtendedRegistration module available, which allows you to bolt extra parts onto the registration page (by adding them to the User content type)
